Polish movies/shows on Netflix?
Hi, does anyone know of any good movies/shows that are in Polish/dubbed in Polish? Preferably on instant play, but any suggestions are great.
I just downloaded some Polish films from Netflix UK, to watch on my next trip. So I can't tell you how good they are but the reviews I read through IMDb were promising. The films are as follows:
It Looks Pretty From A Distance
Huba - Eng. title is Parasite
There's also some Polish Stand-up on Netflix UK, I haven't checked that out yet. I watched Polish comedy shows in Poland and I'm utterly lost as to what's happening!
Not on Netflix but some of my faves, maybe you can find them:
Amator (1979) - Eng. title is Camera Buff
There's also Three Colors: Blue and Three Colors: White which include Polish amongst various languages. Totally awesome films these, love 'em.
It Looks Pretty From A Distance (Z daleka widok jest piekny)
I watched on my last trip to Poland. Events unfold in a rural Polish village that end in the utter disregard for a neighbour's existence. From a language learners point of view it's fairly thin on dialogue. The story is grim to watch, it left me feeling saddened and empty.
We only dub animated movies, and movies that will have a significant young audience, like Harry Potter, Narnia, Star Wars, etc. The idea of dubbing any 'serious' movie will be ridiculous to most Polish people. I don't remember hearing about any non-animated tv series being dubbed. So you should rather search for Polish productions.
There is news :) http://antyweb.pl/netflix-polski-serial-obsada/
Shortly about the plot: alternative reality where the Iron Curtain did not fall. It's 2002, 20 years after a terrorist attack ended all Polish hopes to free from the Soviet occupation and allowed USSR not to fall. Two men discover a conspiracy which allowed for it all to happen.
Yes. Anything foreign, not just TV series. This is always an interesting topic for foreigners in Poland, and I've heard people talk about it two times since last week only ;)
The reader exists only on TV, though. Well, also on VHS tapes and sometimes on DVDs, but almost always a subtitled version will also be present in the DVD edition. Not cinema, definitely.
